Converse CONS will be launching its first collaboration with Polar Skate Co. on October 4 in North America. Polar Skate Co., is a Swedish Skateboarding company founded by Converse CONS Ambassador, Pontus Alv back in 2010. The brand which is based Malmö, Sweden is slowly changing and influencing the skateboarding world with its creativity, fun and stylish skateboard. For this collaboration, Pontus Alv infuses Scandinavian’s aesthetics with durability and style to create a collection that’s simple yet modern and striking. It will feature CONS CTAS Pro sneakers in both hi-top and ox silhouettes – Pontus also give the shoes an updated look with Polar Skate Co.’s branding, such as the iconic “happy/sad” faces on the heel tab and inner tongue labels. Both versions will feature a vertical leather strip, however, The hi-top version has an additional feature – Alv’s familiar hand-written slogan, “Inspire others to inspire themselves”. Both styles offer premium design and materials such as premium abrasion-resistant suede, a molded, multi-density Lunarlon sockliner for extra comfort and impact protection, traction rubber vulcanized outsoles and waxed laces.
Pontus Alv definitely made the right choice by adding only the necessary elements to the sneakers as the final products are anything but dull. The Converse CONS Polar Skate Co.
